Science Without Borders Challenge

Science without Borders® Challenge The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is proud to announce that “Protect our Coral Reefs” is the theme for this year’s Science without Borders® Challenge. This year the Challenge is an art contest, and challengers must submit an original piece of poster art.

Throughout the world coral reefs are rapidly declining due to anthropogenic (human induced) and natural threats. Many scientists predict that we have already lost 19% of the original area of coral reefs. They also predict that if people don’t start making changes, than within the next 10-20 years, 15% of coral reefs will be seriously threatened with loss; and 20% will be under threat of loss in 20-40 years (Status of Coral Reefs in the World 2008). Coral reefs are important ecosystems that harbor nearly 25% of all marine species. They also provide a food supply and livelihoods for millions of people around the world. There are many different actions that we can take in order to aid in slowing down the degradation of coral reefs. The artwork should creatively portray one of these actions.
The contest is open to 14-19 year-olds from US and international secondary schools (high schools). The first place winner will win a $300 scholarship and an iPad Mini. The submission deadline is Monday, April 28, 2014 by 5 pm.

Judging will be based on Understanding of Theme, Elements of Art, Creativity and Craftmanship
